We can only take passengers that are able to get themselves up the steps in the vehicle or have a carer to help them.  They must be able to take walking steps by themselves or with the aid of their own carer. Their wheelchairs must be small compact collapsible chairs as space is limited and can only go in our storage comparments, not inside the vehicles and this must be checked at time of reservation.   This also must be advised 48 hours prior to the tour.  There are also steps and uneven ground on the National Park Boardwalks and into Emmagen Creek. The vehicles aren’t designed for disabled passengers, due to the remoteness and ruggedness of the areas visited. Billy Tea Staff are unable to assist with any lifting or assistance due to insurance liability and not authorised carer.
